First tail of the year

Today was our second day this year going out on the ocean, and our second day of having sperm whales to see, although today we were much more lucky in seeing them than the last time. We encountered three different individuals, first and adult female with a calf and then a juvenile. The adult showed us a nice tail, the first of the year and also a new individual for our catalogue, so the first new whale of 2017! We also enjoyed the company of common dolphins during the day, as well as a few striped dolphins mixed in with a group of common dolphins in the morning, giving us a total of 3 species for the day.
